"Grateful to have had the opportunity to do these sessions. I was in a bad way when I first came. Anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted. I've been given techniques to manage this, think about my triggers, understand what is important to me and set myself goals to keep me on tract. It was a challenge for me to come and open up to someone, but I'm so pleased that I did. Amanda is easy to talk to, made me feel at ease and not like I was going out of my mind. I would definitely recommend anyone feeling down coming to see her. It's helped me massively. ". (S, April 2021).

This experience started as something I needed to do to get back to normal again. As a result of my time with Amanda I now understand that my version of normal had been built on a lifetime of negative & positive experiences, all of which have contributed to making me the person I am. I learnt that in letting go of fear I could see clearer, trust differently & build a better future for myself. Thank you Amanda for all your help". (R, May 2020).
